The Foundation's vision is that people in Britain should live more fulfilled lives within a prosperous and responsible society.
The Foundation was formed in 1971 by the late Demetrius Comino and his daughter Anna. The Foundation's vision was based on, and has been developed from, the Founder's own thinking about achievement and what makes a prosperous and responsible society. The booklet, Demetrius Comino OBE - a life and legacy of achievement details his beliefs, the companies he created and the work of the Foundation.
Since formation the The Foundation's Work has helped society and individuals develop in the context of that vision. The record of the 25th anniversary and 40th anniversary events comment on Dimitri's beliefs and the Foundation's achievements which include changing attitudes to industry, the development and application of GRASP, the Comino Approach and initiatives to enhance opportunity for young people.
The work of the Foundation, as approved by the Trustees, is carried out by the organisations in the Comino Network and is co-ordinated by the Development Fellow. At the heart of this network are 3 Comino Centres which are part funded by the Foundation although they are an integral part of larger institutions. The Foundation also supports the work of other organisations that add to the overall vision of the Foundation.
To help ensure that the Foundation's vision can be realised the Foundation identified that current issues regarding the environment are important. Education materials on climate change issues have been provided.
The trustees meet every two months to discuss the affairs and progress of the Foundation and there is an annual conference to bring together the key people in the Comino Network. Interesting developments arising at these events are recorded in Meetings 2012, Meetings 2011 and Meetings 2010.
